Odroid-Go v2

Post by lordhardware »

Is there any plans to continue the ESP line of products with the Odroid?

With the huge increase of RAM shown with the ESP32-S2 there is a possibility for a device that slots very neatly between the original Odroid (retaining compatibility with existing software) and the Odroid-Go Advance (without creating an underpowered android device).

Something with the above chip, with the same form factor as the original Go
- two additional buttons on the back
- a dedicated DAC and a headphone jack
would be absolutely perfect.


Does HardKernel have any plans for this SoC?

Ironically, it turns out to be the exact opposite:
* ESP32-S2 has only 1 core instead of 2 in ESP32. The emulators are very dependent on the additional core.
* ESP32-S2 has less RAM than ESP32. It only has 320K instead of 520K (IRAM). While it can address more external PSRAM, that memory is slow (SPI).

The ESP32-S2 chip is equipped with a 240 MHz Xtensa® 32-bit LX7 single-core processor with 320 KB of SRAM

Well butter my buns, looks like I was looking at old rumour pages.
